've got to say, if you look at how the republican party reacted the first time president obama was elected, i wrote a book that basically could be boiled down to don't lose your -- al roker at the white house. >> exactly. >> they didn't listen. they went out, they engaged in birtherism, they called the president a racist who hated all white people, and they went so far right and so extreme that they lost middle america. and so yeah, we lost another presidential election. look at the cover of "drudge" which i think magnificently reflects the feelings of conservatives, where the conservative movement is. and you know, he links stories that people want to see, and he does it better than anybody else. this weekend, i went on "drudge." and at the top of it is a story of survivalists. that are buying property, arming themselves and building walls out west. you have sean hannity who is talking about secession. you have another talk radio host whose name isn't even worth mentioning that is talking basically about -- about how the federal government is coming in and taking weapons, you know. there'
at the same time, address safe gun legislation and immigration. that's what they were elected to do. >> because i know that at the news conference the president will open up with a statement on the deficit and raidsing the nation's debt ceiling, but you know the reporters are going to ask questions on those two issues that you just raised. let's just quickly talk about both of these. you're here in washington to talk about the -- you may well remember president obama trieded it, he had ted kennedy on his side, he had mccain on his side, it didn't go anywhere. what do you think if the president tries to push for comprehensive immigration reform including a pathway to citizenship for so many of the ten, 10 million illegal immigrations from -- >> they lost about 71% of the latino vote, 74% of the asian vote. the vast majority of people in the country in poll after poll after poll including your own say that people want comprehensive immigration reform that provides a pathway for citizenship. i saw john mccain yesterday on face the nation and i can tell you that we were in the room toge
, for just the eighth time in history no one was elected to the national baseball hall of fame this year. the baseball writers association said no to barry bonds, to roger clemons, to mark maguire and to sammy sosa. those are some of the biggest names in history but all allegedly cheated by using enhancement performing drugs. earlier pete rose, himself ban from the hall of fame for gambling, his thoughts on the shutout and the odds of him being elected. >> with the odds of the guys you mentioned, besides clemons because he was a pitcher, how about babe ruth, etc., who lost their record because of the suspicion of steroids. i have to defend roger clemons in this and the reason i have to defend him is because till this day he says he didn't take steroids and he's never flunked a drug test and he went in front of two different courts and they both ruled in favor of him. so who am i to sit here and say that roger clemons took steroids because he won some games after he was 40 years old. bonds admitted he put the steroids on him. sosa flunked the test. let's talk about bigio, piazza, jack mor
of the legislature, and they going to be jerry brown aficionados until it's time to run for re- election. that is two years. >> so, he's got money and two years and he's going get a lot of calls to quote, unquote, restore funding. >> right. >> that is what you going to hear about, restore funding, not new funding or extra funding but restore funding to past levels, which some might argue was over the top. >> that's right, but we have seen so many painful cuts over the last several years, there is going to be a lot of groups campaigning to get the money back. >> they're already up there. meanwhile. >> the 49ers headed for the national conference championship game for the second straight season. >> that's right, vern glen has all the highlights, as many as we could put in from last night's drumming of the green pay packers. -- green bay packers. >> reporter: good morning, bay area. if you love the san francisco 49ers, you're living a charmed life. the joint here at candle stick park was jumping last night at the expense of the green bay packers. not only did kapernick rush for an nfl play-off, he shatt

much the president feels empowered by his second election, you know, the inauguration a couple of days away and what his read is on where the country is on this issue. we heard from gabrielle giffords and mark kelly the other day, they say they are gun owners but want to see restrictions on assault weapons and multiple clips. what is your sense for which way this is going? when. >> reporter: you know, at the beginning, soon after newtown and at the beginning of this back and forth it seemed like that could have a lot of votes in congress to move through. it seems as often has happened that sides, they go to their corners. we'll see after the vice president comes out with the tax force recommendations whether there is some coming together on some solutions. what hasn't been talked about a lot are the mental health aspects of this. or the hollywood aspect of it, and we haven't focused on it. so if there is a comprehensive approach to it, perhaps it will get more involved. martha: as you said coming into this there are so many laws already on the books that are just not enforced, maybe th

voters first elected a woman to the united states senate. wyatt care owe way was a democrat from arkansas. the state had actually appointed her to the seat several months earlier after her husband died. she would become the first woman to share a senate committee. and to preside over a senate hearing. all while speaking called her silent haddie. she didn't want to waste taxpayer's money in printing speeches in the congressional record. that sounds heroic. voters spoke putting her in the history books 81 years ago today. that is how fox reports on this saturday, january 12th, 2013. i'm harris faulkner. thank you for spending part of your saturday night with us. my saturday night is just getting started. see you for a news update in about a half an hour right in the middle of huckabee which starts in a few seconds. tonight on huckabee. train wreck tv reach as new low. >> you guys he might be known as rapper here in atlanta is he known for having 11 kids and 10 baby mommas. >> controversial show ridicules family structure and sends wrong message to young women. >> we need a generati

.m. on the oprah win friday network. other sports news for the eighth time in history, no one was elected to the national baseball hall of fame this year. the baseball writers association said no to barry bonds, roger clemens, mark mcgwire and sammy so sosa. those are some of the biggest names in baseball history, but all allegedly cheated by using performance enhancing drugs. earlier, don lemon asked former cincinnati reds superstar pete rose, himself banned from the hall of fame for gambling. his thoughts on the hall of fame shutout, and the odds that one day he might be inducted. >> as far as the guys you mentioned, with the exception of clemmens, because he's a pitcher, wouldn't it be nice if you could interview babe ruth? roger maris, hank aaron? those are the guys who lost their records because of the suspension of steroids, not -- i don't know if i'll get in trouble for this, i have to defend roger clemmens in this. the reason i have to defend him is because until this day, he says he didn't take steroids, and he's never flunked a drug test, and he went in front of two different co
was elected for four more years. to me, this president has shown in the first four years that he's willing to go to battle for these types of things because remember when he won the first election, one of the first thing he said was "i won the election." >>steve: after george bush and george bush lost all his political capital by the time katrina hit. he was not able to use his political capital to get social security passed. that was after winning the election and beating john kerry. >>brian: what is wrong -- what are the challenging things about senator hey dell? number one, he's for without preconditions sitting down with iran. he says sections wouldn't talk. he says it is a good idea for israel to talk directly with hamas. hezbollah is an organization we should be engaged with. he went against the surge, was with president obama. this is one last time to say the bush administration and the bush policies were going the exact opposite way. senator ted cruz, one of the up and coming stars on hannity last n.i.h. >> he was reelected and at this point he thinks he can do nothing wrong. he we
minister medvedev about more flexibility after the election. well, this is flexibility manifesting itself. we're pushing everything up more quickly. moving up the time line contradicts a lot of reports we've seen about the readiness of the afghan national army, whether they will truly be prepared to secure the country both to protect the regime there but also ensure the mission we went there to execute, which is prevent al qaeda and radical islamist extremists from having a haven from which to operate, whether they'll be able to do that. that is still an open question making this announcement -- >> what are we doing now, pete? some folks say we're kind of sitting ducks in some way. is the mission going on? what is the mission? what is the end goal in your mind as a veteran? >> sure. the end goal should be to secure america's interests. this is not about building a nation for afghan. let's be clear about that. however, i don't think a rush for the exits right now is the way to do it. a gradual, measured withdrawal based on conditions where we train the afghan national army to be capable. w
crisis in venezuela, because the constitution there says you're supposed to have an election within 30 days. if the winner cannot actually be inaugurated. we'll see what happens there. we'll show you what's going on with venezuelan bonds. they're widely held with a lot of fixed-income portfolios. look at that, nearly 9%. when hugo chavez first got sick, venezuelan bonds rallied dramatically, because people thought, okay, there's now going to be more investment back in the oil infrastructure, that means there will be more likely to pay back the money. in the short term if you look to the right, yields have risen again because in the short term, this could lead to chaos. they have the largest reserves in the western hemisphere when it comes to oil. moving on to north korea. we now have video, google executive chairman, eric schmidt, touring a computer lab in north korea, along with the former governor bill richardson who organized the trip. this is the entrance to the grand people's study house. and you'll see them looking at north korean individuals who happen to be allowed to be on the

in time is what should happen is the president should be in charge of the country, and elections sh s should be called. i will say right now there say lot of anxiety. not many people on the street know what this will mean. they are saying so far it doesn't look like it will lead to conflict in the streets. but it is confusing for anyone living here. >> as there is anxiety in venezuela, we have chavez in cuba. have we -- have you heard anything from him? has he spoken, reacted to the high court's decision in his favor? >> reporter: more than a month and no one has heard or seen hugo chavez. i think that's what really rattled everyone yesterday. when they said hugo chavez would not be at his swearing in, if he had a crawl to it, he would have. he would have come in a wheelchair, he would have come attached to an iv. if he couldn't be here, it means he's gravely ill. i think that's the other thing that has many people rattled here. he's been a larger than life leader in this country. love him or hate him, he has been the leader and it has been very unsettling for many people. this econom
who won an election to decide to pick one or two big personnel fights. that happens in politics. think think -- the white house calculation, jim's dead right about the iraq war. if we have to re-debate the iraq war, they're on the high ground for that one and hearing criticism he's soft. normally when a democrat does that, they want someone that's tough because the criticism historically is they're soft on defense and here's a republican choice labeled as soft, soft on israel and soft coming to iran sanctions. john mccain and other conservatives say soft with the end of the iraq war and the president's comfortable with him and comfortable with the new cia chief. the president doesn't have to face re-election. this is the second term a different set of calculations and thinks he has work to do, diplomacy. they think they'll win in the end. >> i want to ask you about hagel's israel comments because he made some pretty pointed comments about israel and going to quote them. in one, hagel said, i'm not an israeli senator. and another, quote, the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up h
as lawmakers need money to get re-elected, how can any law maker really take a stand and make it stick? >> we simply have to take a stand, and the nra leadership has never shown any shortage of arrogance, and they're not displaying any humility now, but this is a real tipping point. the country has reached an awful fatigue with these repeated gun tragedies. i think that will be reflected in what congress does. i think it will develop the spine and backbone necessary to pass an assault weapons ban, a ban on ammunition clips, to pass universal background checks, and i hope to remove this immunity that only one industry in america enjoys and that, in fact, protects a lot of unscrupulous gun sellers and dealers. >> congressman adam schiff, thanks so much for being with us. >>> it's been one month to the day since the killing rampage at sandy hook elementary in newtown, connecticut. as the heart broken town searches for some semblance of normalcy, it should also wrestle with the question, should the school be left standing? about 200 people gathered to debate the future of sandy hook elementary. s

when he was president elect had a famous eruption of his temper at the bean counters who were complaining about lack of women in little rock. but it's been 20 years. there's been a generation since then. and it ought to have been easy. in fact, it would have been easy to find women. imagine what the stories would look like now if susan rice had been nominated to be secretary of state and michelle florinoi was the first defense secretary. >> i'm told that they are looking for a woman for commerce. i'm sure they are all very qualified. and then you say, oh, they needed a woman and they are putting that woman in a job because she's a woman. well, that's not a good storyline for them. >> or for people like you and me. >> right. exactly. and then the other question i have is, how much does the president, the top people listen to the women who are there? is it a question of numbers of women or is it a question of influence of women? i mean, you could argue that valley jarrett is the closest person on the senior staff to the president, long time friend close to the president and clos

[ screaming ] . >> a world turned up side down. a luxury cruise liner strikes a massive rock. it shudders to a stop, begins listing heavily and starts to sink. >> the fear that was basically, terrifying, because especially what really terrified is, well how -- when panic started -- >> this couple and their two daughters were among the 4200 plus, passengers and crew on board the costa concordia, they said their goodbyes thinking they would die. it was found that the captain did not order abandon ship in a timely manner. >> if they trained the personnel, and gave the word, everyone wanted to get on the lif
